The Dongping area is one of the most important gold-producing areas in China. It is located in the central part of the northern marginal zone of the North China Craton (NCC), which has been intruded by a number of alkaline and granitic batholiths or plutons that are spatially associated with gold deposits. The largest igneous intrusion in the region, the Shuiquangou syenite–monzonite complex, was emplaced at ca. 390 Ma. The emplacement of the Guzuizi porphyritic granite pluton at 236±2 Ma represents another major magmatic event in the region. Latest magmatism is marked by the emplacement of the Shangshuiquan monzogranite at 142.2±1.3 Ma, which is most likely related to an underplating event that took place in the Dongping and its adjacent areas at ca. 140 Ma.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Middle Triassic : 241 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
